The hotel where I stayed in Kauai had a small, but lovely beach. Every morning and evening, I would spend an hour or two there to take photos.
The waterfront was full of rocks. It was a treasure for a photographer like me. I was able to capture some incredible scenes. Here is an example below.
The excellent Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 lens is perfect to bring out details. And it is sturdy enough to capture sharp long-exposure shots. The wind can be very strong near the ocean...
Fact: All beaches in Hawaii, with a very few exceptions, are open to the public. It means that if you happen to walk near Clint Eastwood's or Oprah's property, nobody has the right to ask you to leave. Unless, of course, you planned on entering that home...
